The Lord has gathered us together, as his church.
He has tended to our needs, fed us, nurtured us.
Now, as we scatter from here, may we become his shepherds.
Gathering the flock to God.
Rounding up the lost sheep into the circle of God’s love, of God’s care.
And, in the gathering, may we be a blessing and may we be blessed in and through the one who sends us, God almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, this day, this week and forevermore.
